7:46 am
we pushed in closer to t friday. we will continue with the dry pattern has restored the next work week. >> george. >> we are looking at a different pattern a pattern of slow traffic of the san mateo bridge for just seconds ago we saw stopped traffic at the toll plaza. that is the case now. we look at the accordion slowdown. a stop and go situation starts at the base of the high-rise and gradually worked its way back to the toll plaza. the dry times or 50-18 minute. that means from time to time--15 and-18 minutes. southbound that would side there is an overturn it is not in the lines it is on the right-hand shoulder. the emergency vehicles are blocking the right hand lane. that is why there is the short stretch of slow traffic on 280 southbound. i
7:47 am
do not think it is a bed of delay to detour. you will need to give yourself a few extra minutes. looking at the right of the bay bridge in the west bound commute you will find a back of about 18-20 minutes. no surprises a fairly easy ride and when the advisory was issued in the early morning hours. the golden gate bridge is still wet, but no delays for southbound traffic and is the trip across the span. >> i told him not to worry about the cameras are the stars does play your game. >> colin is the man. i think he did a great job i am very proud of him. i take my hat off to him he did some great things to help was when the game. >> colin did an outstanding job. he did a great job
7:48 am
growing with accuracy he did a nice job running the game plan everything he did was exemplary. i wanted to come out and show love show that i could be a starter. and that is what i have tried to prove since i have been in the league. >> yes. so what now? that is the big question after that spectacular performance with kaepernick in the win against the bears. >> good morning. how are you? >> i want you to settle this to you realize i have got from every end of the spectrum telling me he should stay. alex smith should not go back in. here is what are aharbaugh should do. >> ashley you should be worth i cannot hear you.
7:49 am
actually you should be worried. i cannot hear you. >> maybe i need to change the mike. i cannot even hear you hold on second. >> better than rg 3. why don't you say alex y. recover half kaeperncik play for a little longer. >> this guy was so good last night i do believe there is a old sang in sports that you are not supposed to lose your job because of injury. you know how this will be decided i think in the locker room the players know who is better. nobody is
7:50 am
point to come right out. they came close to saying that kaepernick is better. i think you have to be fair about this and say the last year and a half in particular smith has been good. they have won the majority of their gains. but just on physical gifts what he can do this guy is better than alex. >> you talk about the player sound bites vernon davis said i felt like someone took the handcuffs off. >> that is the thing about vern and davis he is sometimes too honest. >> is it like an understudy. n a play where the person and they are sick in their under study comes in and you put the guy back is he supposed to go back? >> what about brady can blesoe what about montana and young. we saw how that went down. how does it work
7:51 am
we see these guys knocked each other off all the time. >> no one wants to come out and say this i think the best thing if you are alex smith and i am not going to speak for him, but i am being realistic. for kapernick to start in oil as an had a bad game he loses at alex get back in. >> how does harbaugh handle this? does he take a chance. >> i think you have to start him again. i will say it again you know, the team knows they see the guys every day. this may not be an indictment of smith it may be that this guy he is more talented than smith. he throws the ball better. he runs better. it is just one of those things where you could watch him in the game last night he is physically
7:52 am
and i keeping physically, just from what we see item of you have to watch him play for tin cans to know how because the game mentally how he deals with the situation. just physically he is better than smith. >> you look at the way, brady endorsed. and it was like gangbusters. even though he entered for bledsoe before they were ready. bledsoe was kind of going down. if you look at young he was on his way down best-montana was on his way down. >> here is the thing the coach knows and the players know and no one is quick to come out again and tell you very much. if in the coach's mind harbaugh are thinking it is time i am waiting for
7:53 am
an opening. once there is an open he goes in. the same with bledsoe and brady. i am sure the coach says once there is an opening i am putting green. if he plays like i think he can that is it i would not be surprised if this not the same deal. >> you know what ever is it has to be quick. >> when things are prolonging that is bad blood. that does not work out. >> tebow has not really play this year. when you bring in another guy it's like smith knows now likekaeprnick is right behind him. that is messy. >> competition is good but not with his iwhen is it a leado position. maybe if you are a linemen. i think to start to
7:54 am
feel comfortable you have to know that it is your job. all i know i wawill have a great sport stock today. >> like you said does harbaugh gold you take a look time out or you're out. >> you and i will be the first ones to say this because people here the only way i think it will work out for smith kaepernick start sunday in new orleans loses the game and they will say let's put alex back in. >> we will see you very. what is a nice big question mark what he is making.
